This week, I’ll be taking a look at the Muse mattress, an all-foam bed that comes in three different firmness options. I can’t wait to put the Muse to the test, but first I’ve got to get it out of its packaging and let it decompress on the frame.
Check out the unboxing below and jump to the end of this post to get a sneak peek into the construction of the Muse!
The Muse is built with three distinct layers of foam, measuring up to 12” of comfort. The top two layers are made of memory foam, which tells me I should prepare for some quality body contouring and pressure relief.
FYI: for the purpose of the review, I’ll be looking at the soft version of the mattress.
Cover – The cover is woven with a polyester knit of high-performance fibers intended to regulate body temperature and wick away moisture from the body. It’s got a soft, cool and stretchy feel to it and is also removable.
Comfort Layer – The comfort layer is comprised of 2” of gel-infused memory foam. This layer is slow to respond to pressure and produces some excellent body contouring, plus the infusion of cooling gel should help to dissipate heat.
Contour Layer – Below the comfort layer, you’ll find another 2” of memory foam. This section extends the body contouring of the top layer into the rest of the mattress, deepening the compression as you sink further into the structure.
Support Layer – And finally you’ll find 8” of high-density poly foam. This section acts as both the support and foundation of the mattress, imbuing the bed with durability and stability.
- Classic memory foam feel – With so much memory foam, this bed is sure to exemplify the best aspects of the material, namely its pressure-relieving properties.
- Potentially great for side sleepers – I have a feeling this is going to be a pretty soft mattress, so could be a good one for side sleepers to keep an eye on.
That’s all for now, stay on the lookout for my full review!
